Also, I noticed that the stale version warning for make install always
scrolls out of the terminal window.  I never notice it unless I'm looking
for it, so it's not doing me much good.  Is there any way to print it

This is the error message I'm referring to, in case that helps:

  % make install
  WARNING: version string 2.3b.21-d67c5-dirty is out of date; run autoreconf -f 
to fix it
  make  install-recursive

Well, I tried to make it a hard error, so that it would be the only
output, but others on the list convinced me to reduce it back to a
warning.  I don't know of any GNU make construct to make it appear last.
Maybe we just insert a sleep 10 after printing the warning, so that the
interactive user has time to notice the message and Ctrl-C the build,
while an unattended install eventually proceeds?

That would work for me.
